Matthew 13

Kingdom Parables

Day 2

Behold, the sower went out to sow; 4 and as he sowed, some seeds fell beside the road, and the birds came and ate them up. 5 Others fell on the rocky places, where they did not have much soil; and immediately they sprang up, because they had no depth of soil

Matthew 13:3-5

The seed has the power, but the soil gives permission.  God can do anything He wants without us, but He does everything He wants with us, and it all begins with receiving the seed.  We must receive the word, and give the word permission to come into our hearts.  We are the doorkeepers of our own hearts.  The soil of our lives is the heart of our souls.  It’s here that we decide what to trash and what to treasure so the condition of our hearts is more important that the considerations of our heads.  The heart can be hard, it can be dirty, it can be poisoned, or it can be good.  Before we worry about what’s in our heads, maybe we should look at what’s in our hearts, honestly., because if there is no power with the word maybe there’s a problem with our will.
